As the only heart transplant center in Central Texas, the Seton Transplant Center provides and coordinates services for patients with chronic Heart Failure who may need a heart transplant or who have already been transplanted. The goals of the clinic are to promote optimal health, optimize quality of life and provide comprehensive outpatient services.
Patients have access to cardiologists who specialize in heart transplants and have the opportunity to participate in investigational studies for drugs and devices, when available.
Since the program began in 1986, Seton has transplanted close to 300 hearts. The transplant team performs up to 27 heart transplants annually, with more than 85% of adult patients surviving a year or more after their surgeries.
